Miniexcavator AIR DIGGER

AIR DIGGER is a low impact excavator which uses vacuum technology and compressed air with a special multi-stage vacuum pump.

Particularly suitable for safe excavations in explosion risk areas and in confined areas where there are gas pipes, water pipes, mains electricity, telephone networks and other underground non-removable pipes. 
AIR DIGGER sucks the excavated material through a pipe from 4" and places it inside a case with a capacity of 1000 lt. The air passes through another case, after then through a filter and blown back into the environment. 
AIR DIGGER with the high pressure vacuum may suck various materials, such as steel flakes, earth, stones, sand, chips of various kinds, mud, etc..; 
The discharge of the collected materials is simply done by opening the door which is located below the suction inlet. 
AIR DIGGER is mounted on a rubber dumper trucks or trucks or a pick-up. 
AIR DIGGER requires occasional maintenance. 
Not having an internal combustion engine or mechanical parts in motion, it is only necessary to clean the air filter occasionally (depending on the degree of use and material aspirated), which is housed inside the strong steel frame. It is recommended to clean the pre-filter using compressed air before and after each use.
